Waves are so light
Carried by the flow
Down by the shore
There's a boatman's home

The old ferryman
Old and skillful carrier!
Sail your airy boat
Over silver waves

Graceful boat is light and so firm his hand
People overseas recognize that man
Glare skims over waves and spreads everywhere
Fame of man, with whom river secret shared 

Someone calls him sage, no one knows his age
Eyes like those of youth, didn't know the ruth
Voice is sonorous, speech is beautiful
He perceived the gist of troubles and disease

Freely river
Overflows with waves
Plash of a stream
Quiet weep of cane...

Drive your airy boat
Old experienced carrier
Drive your airy boat
Over silver moon

Graceful boat is light, rumors day and night
Bring him silk and gold - lavish gifts of folk
They all want to know, they all want to see
Secrets of the one, with whom the river speaks

Father! Guide us now, share your wisdom, please
How to live with fun, walk the path of bliss
How to not astray, not to drift away
Send our hearts like ships to the sunny rays

He lived near the quay and the river whirled away
All his griefs and sorrows are drowned in deep waters
He conceived all symbols and predestinations 
River's gently motion was his inspiration

River boundless, dreamlike shores to rest
House from grass and cane takes the yearn away
Graceful boat is light and so firm is hand
Morning rays of sun - pleasure for this man

River wild and fast, flowing never ends
Through the winter snows, summer rains and storms
All will dash away and return someday
Love is to be found, life is all around
